    Isn't that what we all do with S3&K though?

    I've just realized that the Special Stages look like they could be really fun in Vs. mode, kind of like a "Sonic R lite".
     
  6. This worries me, since I got a 3 button genesis controller and adapter for this game. I guess I won't have enough buttons? :(

    And thus the Taxman became the taxed man.

    Wouldn't be difficult to use X360CE and map something like the C button to Y, considering all face buttons do the same things anyway.

    Yeah it was a shitty article to begin with.
     
  11. Don't shoot the messenger ;)
    I only shared the article to point out the button being used to restart Time Attack.
     
  12. He's had 23 years to master blue spheres and 134,217,728 maps to practice on. He should only be frustrated with himself not Sonic Mania.

    Well that's interesting. Sonic Mania previously had 12K owners/pre-orders on Steam and just over the last 48 hours or so it has spiked to 15K.

    Perhaps the bonus stage reveal and recent promo caused a surge?

    It'll be super interesting to observe sales once the game is released. Honestly hoping it breaks 500K or something like that in no time.

    There may also be more generalized factors at play. The month just started, so people got their pay. And the weekend is when people have the time to sit down and look into games to get.

    No, I kept looking after getting the Emeralds because I wanted ALL THE RINGS!!!

    It's not like there was some limit or shortage of them either, considering the number of available rings reaches about 2 dozen before you reach the fifth zone of the game.

    It's looking like there will be at least two special stage giant rings per act. So lets for argument sake say there are 12 zones in Mania. This would mean 48 possible attempts to get 7 chaos emeralds which is very generous. Therefore, there's no need what-so-ever for a restart option in the special stage.

    Even in 3&K when I've collected all Chaos Emeralds/Super Emeralds and unlocked Super/Hyper Sonic I still go for the giant rings because they give you 50 rings as a reward for finding each one. I hope Mania is the same.


    A restart option would have been far better suited to a game like Sonic Heroes, because only being allowed one attempt to get each chaos emerald in a playthrough was so unfair (also doesn't help that those special stages control like garbage).

    I know its odd to say but I'd like to have a sort of bestiary of the enemies encountered and information of the zones you visited, like we did in Generations. Since its going back to the origins of Sonic, it would be pretty interesting to chill, reading the information we collect about everything, with 2D displays... & Knuckles.

    I have too many ideas for what to have in a 2D Sonic game, Sonic Team, please hire me, I am willing to share. :/
     
  19. Okay, what's a good controller option for PS4 again?

    Is there any way of using older official Sega Saturn controllers on newer consoles? (Seems to be a lack of options when it comes to using official controllers... I'm still trying to find a way to use official NES controllers for PS4 on Shovel Knight. :\ )
